defense budget, i think chuck hagel seemed a very obvious choice. i basically thought that is where the president was going to go early on. host: this is a the news from "the new york times". the war and against hagel and republicans called him in the piecer based on what he said in iraq. he voted for the war but turned against it. easer sings very strong. guest: he voted for it and then had criticism of how it was being carried out. when you talk about the secretary defense, the most important thing that happened during the war is the surge. he voted against the surge. he called the worst mistake since vietnam. we know in terms of the military, strategy and the search worked. it was very successful. when you're talking about putting somebody in the secretary of defense has such strong views, in my opinion, that is the question that senators will be asking. host: we are going to share with you from the c-span video library some of the statements by senator chuck hagel and many interviews were conducted with him over the years. our que in a program and a number of speeches he has del
hagel, the choice for defense secretary. later, someone from morgan stanley talks about his new book. "washington journal" was next. >> good morning here in washington on the sunday morning. rehearsals underway later today for the inaugural ceremony. it will officially get underway in eight days. it is sunday, january 13. the house returns this week. the senate returns after the inauguration. converse tries to figure out what to do on the issue of spending and the national debt. we want to get your comments on a proposal put forth by senate democrats to bypass congress, allowing the president to raise the debt ceiling. it also removes the debate on section four of the 14th amendment. we will focus on all of this this sunday morning. it was a call. numbers at the bottom of your screen. we also want you to join us online on twitter and facebook or send us an e-mail. we will get your calls and comments in just a moment. our question, whether or not they residents can -- president can't bypass congress to raise the debt ceiling. she is preparing for his inaugural address. the presid
of defense. we have a clash you will want to watch. >>> then the relationship between the united states and russia keeps getting worse, whose fault is it? moscow or washington? a debate. also, the next fight in washington will be over the debt ceiling. can president obama end this craziness and bypass congress altogether? we'll talk about the out of the box solutions and whether they would work. >>> and, finally, this is the signature of the man who might be the next treasury secretary. we'll look back through history to see if there's any loopy president. speaking of secretaries of the treasury three former holders of the office and many other statesmen and women offering advice to the president on a new gps special tonight "memo to the president, road map for a second term." tonight at 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. eastern and pacific. >>> first, here's my take. chuck hagel's nomination as america's next secretary of defense has drawn fire from people who say he's outside of the main stream. in fact, he's a pretty straight forward, traditional republican on most issues with a reluctance to
learned in the process of writing that book. ken ballen served on the staff and now a national defense university and has one negative written a chapter on the strategic defeat of both chitin and what we should do about a. it is a popular view in washington d.c. how they say attacking been gauzy is proof but we will do without question with his remarks. finally sameer lalwani a ph.d. candidate and has say an interesting chapter on counter insurgency operations that is quite effective but arguably the pakistan need military did better than we have in afghanistan that we will start with hassan abbas. >> first and foremost, figure eight work done by the new america foundation is a great contribution and source for research everywhere and not just the u.s.. i just returned from pakistan 48 hours ago. three days in pakistan and two were discussing phenomenon. we had just gone back and this was recent to hold a big rally coming up with a new agenda and in three months there is political activity but i am given seven minutes on the frontier province and given my position that today my views a
,000, the lowest level since january of 2008. outgoing secretary of defense leon panetta waded into the gun control debate in a question and answer session yesterday. team made no bones about his support for president obama's proposal and noted he helped with president clinton in 1994's ban on assault weapons and says he supports that ban as well as a strict rule on armor piercing bullets. in a hostage situation still ongoing at d.c.'s oil spill in nigeria details are sketchy but it is being reported algerian airstrikes kill 34 hostages in 14 of their al qaeda captives. the algerian army attempting to take control. be right back. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney pro
to be secretary of defense. >> i haven't had the privilege of serving with chuck. i don't know chuck hagel. i know his reputation and i've spoken to him once on the phone. he's coming in next week to speak with me and i look forward to that. i have some questions i want to ask and sit down and get his view points on israel. our greatest ally. i wanted to see where his rack, why he -- iraq, why he chose to oppose the iraq war which i think was a wise choice now we know all the conditions. also iran. i believe the sanctions in iran are working and can even work further without going in and having a land war there. and afghanistan. i believe that he believes as i do that there's not going to be any changes that we're going to significantly make there no matter how long we are there. it's going to be a very interesting conversation i look forward to having. but i truly believe, i was a former executive being a governor and i always appreciated when the senate gave me the gave me the respoask basically putting -- respect of basically putting my staff together. i will give every consideration to our pre
. they don't want to cut defense. >> cenk: that's true. hey, man i'm perfectly happy to do that. let's go to michael shure. the language is good. the frame something good. it seems strong. excuse me if i'm a little skeptical that he won't negotiate over the debt cerealing. >> you're excused for being skeptical, you're fine. you have every reason to feel that way although i think the way he handled the fiscal cliff was a departure--i think he bent over a little bit less than he has in the past in terms of going back on what he said he was going to do. he got americans to--wealthy americans to pay more in taxes. not the specific $250,000, quarter of a million. >> when we came to the so-called fiscal cliff there was a question that the american people had to resolve or the politicians did between the clinton-era tax rates where we had great prosperity and the bush-era tax rate where we didn't have that prosperity. for some reason we chose to go with the bush-era tax rates for 99% of americans. that makes no sense. >> but again-- >> and boehner is saying now he's literally i got 99% of what i
warfare in a moment. first on the crisis we are joined by the staff writer for defense and national defense for the hill. >> thank you for having me. >> what is the latest? officials say the assault is over but some prisoners are still being held. >> that's where the situation stands right now. you mentioned alger an special forces and the numbers regarding the hostages still on the -- at the facility, it is just as murky as the numbers coming out as who were killed and who escaped. some reports have said as many as two americans are still on the facility under lock and key by the militants who are there. again, reports vary. >> are we to assume these are are bp employees or contractors being held? >> more than likely. it is was a bp-owned facility. they would be employees algerrian and other countries as well. >> the group calls themselves the masked brigade and are they a new strain of al qaeda? >> i am not sure if they are a new strain. they are in line with many of the al qaeda groups in the country. they hav
. >> the french have doubled the number of troops on the ground in mali. the defense minister of the country says there are 1400 soldiers trying to retake rebel- controlled towns. diabaly is 400 meters from the capital. french air strikes near diabaly have done little. chad has promised to send thousands of soldiers and hundreds of nigerian troops are expected to arrive. muhammed is in the capital with a report. what is the latest? >> elizabeth, we have been speaking with residents of diabaly. they say the rebels are still in control of the town. trenches have been dug on the outskirts and in the middle of the town, from where they are defending the town from malian troops supported by french ground forces. the residents have told us the rebels are impounding civilian cars, which they're using in the fight against the french and the rebels have been stopping people from fleeing the town, although some have escaped and have been talking about huge casualties. one woman said there have been huge casualties on the side of the malian forces and she saw fledmalian soldiers ias she the city. it is just
concern. in fact, our defense minister is in town today at the pentagon, discussing some of these issues. he has come with a detailed list of the enablers the afghan national army needs, including, as you mentioned, long-range artillery and intelligence- gathering capabilities. fixed-wing and rotary aircraft for transportation. we have been completely dependent for all of these things on nato and our other friends and allies. again, a lot of these equipments are not as expensive as conducting these operations with nato in afghanistan. if there is a political will, it is doable. the same thing as far as the salaries of the afghan national army and police. yes, it is a significant number, considering the afghan economy. or the withdrawal of each international troops from afghanistan, we can sustain 80 afghan national army soldiers on the ground, if there is a willingness to continue with this mission. as you mentioned, to come with a more reasonable definition of success in afghanistan, which has come up to now, then diminished, what it means to succeed here in afghanistan. >> the end of t
with the presidential level. lori: will this be, pounded with the confirmation of the new secretary of defense? >> yes. that will be an interesting confirmation hearing. lori: would d be riprocated you had a vote? to make i think the president showed deference with his nomination to the cabinet and senior administration but that has not been the case in a long time. that is the wrong way to approach these things. lori: we appreciate your analysis. ambassador john bolton. much more with afghanistan coming up with the "a team". call of duty, and mortal kombat, are these violent video games poisoning the lori: john lonski is here with the look of the market's and today's unexpected widening of the trade gap. look at what happened on wall street. it was flat not even with the bad news of a the trade gap in november. the dow nasdaq entire but the recipe and change. volume over 3 billion shares. for the week the s&p raised o when 4% but the nasdaq was zero point* 8%. wells fargo kicked off earnings and disappointed by announcing a narrower margin. bank of america and jpmorgan and citigroup will report next

on the whole has been concerned for the defense department for awhile now. the defense department has created in recent years the africa command and also a joint special operations task force was deployed to the transsahara region of the country -- in early 2000. it was part of the previous bush administration's global war on terror. so the white house and the pentagon have always had their eye on that area. possibly becoming a safe haven for al-qaeda and al-qaeda-affiliated groups. but i think the number of incidents that have happened in the recent weeks have sort of drawn most people's attention to it now. >> john: thank you very much. national defense and national security staff writer for the hill carlo munoz. i hope you'll come back to keep us updated on this development. >> will do. thanks. >> john: thank you so much. from the hostage crisis in algeria to the covert american drone war, i'm pleased to be joined by filmmaker and activist robert greenwald. the documentary drones exposed. thank you for joining us, mr. greenwald. >> my pleasure. >> john: before we begin talking about drone
of defense, mark martin's, who is the fifth chief prosecutor, the department of defense concluded a material support and conspiracy are not legitimate international lawful offenses, and they declined to participate in the appeal and it dropped the conspiracy charge against collegiate mohamed and other 9/11 detainees. the department of justice decided to move forward on the appeal ruling that those are a legitimate offenses, that the government has two different opinions. general martins to the podcast is today, and he said, number one, there's another option award to prosecute these guys, which is true because congress said cannot bring them to the u.s., so you cannot prosecute them in federal courts. we created the obstacle that makes military commissions. we created our own justification. he said it is the best form and a small number of cases, but if you peel that back and look at why, is because of the no rights advisement and the basic treatment in detention. if you peel it back, it is about what we did then -- we did to them, which makes military commissions seem like an attractive opt
have people recognize that when it comes to defense spending. some of the same people say we have to cut spending or complain that government jobs don't do anything, but when it comes to the defense contractor in their district, they think it is an important part of the economy in their district and that we should not stop spending on that. let's just make sure we're not spending on those other people. [no audio] my hope is that common sense prevails. that is always my preference. i think that would be the preference of the american people and it would be good for the economy. let me just repeat. if the issue is deficit reduction, getting our deficit sustainable over time, getting our debt in a sustainable place, then democrats and republicans in congress will have a partner in me. we could achieve that fairly quickly. we know what the numbers are and we know what needs to be done. we know what a balanced approach would take and we have done half of the deficit reduction we need to stabilize. there has probably been more pain and trauma in getting there than we needed. finishing t
fire gets an energy all its own. some months later department of defense, inspector general came out with a report with a different set of conclusions than the article drew, but that was months later and after the fact. at the time when the media controversy arose, the most important thing was not stan mcchrystal's reputation, it was not stan mcchrystal's job, it was the mission. the mission i was there in the 150,000 people that count on me and the afghan people i care a lot about. so i made the decision, you know, right away that i went back to washington the next day that i would offer my resignation to the president as an option for him either to leave me in afghanistan or accept my resignation. >> were you surprised he accepted it? >> no. >> too much controversy at the time? >> i'm not a washington insider, but i can see a media controversy. i know that when the oxygen's being burned out of a room, i was not surprised. i regret that it went that way. i'd have liked to stay on the mission, but, you know, i was in command. i was responsible. and i don't have any hesitation to this
seats women are in. there are three seats with women as treasury secretary, defense secretary and veterans' affairs and back to that photo, the fiscal cliff conversation that where women are sitting, the first woman ever appointed, was the labor secretary. we have a good history of women in the labor position. what about treasury secretary and defense? what difference does this make? so where they sit really matters. >> one thing this issue brings up so -- the idea of these kind of disingenuous attacks from republicans on this. which has been interesting to me because i tweeted out the photo of "the times" photo. i had the good fortune of coming up in the world of lefty media that i can't recalling being in a meeting with 11 men and one woman. i don't think as a general rule that's a good idea in any case for anything other than maybe an nfl football team. like i don't understand why you would have a meeting where that was the case. i tweeted it out and it got retweeted by a bunch of conservatives like, ha, ha, you women of america, you've been punked by the administration. he
. but first, the battle is ratcheting up today over chuck hagel's nomination as defense secretary. here's former secretary of state colin powell on "meet the press." >> i think he gets confirmed. i think ultimately he's superbly qualified based on his overall record, based on his service to the country, based on how he feels about troops and veterans and families. i think he will do a great job as secretary of defense. and i think in his confirmation hearings all of these issues that you've raised, that others have raised, he'll be prepared to deal with. >> also new today, senator john mccain offering new insight into his concern about this nomination. >> what is his view of america's role in the world? whether he really believes that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war. that clearly is not -- that's not correct. i mean, in fact, it's bizarre. why would he oppose calling the iranian revolutionary guard a terrorist organization? these are legitimate questions that need to be asked. i honor his service. we are friends. but i have an obligation to the men and women who ar
's choice of chuck hagel for defense secretary. schumer said today the former republican senator has now addressed claims that he's anti- israel, among other things. california democrat barbara boxer also issued a statement of support. the backing of two prominent jewish senators is expected to help hagel ease concerns among other, pro-israel lawmakers. a major debt rating agency warned today the u.s. could lose its top credit status if there's a delay in raising the debt ceiling. the federal government is expected to exceed its borrowing limit by march, unless congress acts. if fitch does downgrade u.s. debt, it would join standard and poor's, which took that action in 2011 during the last debt ceiling debate. the u.s. house moved to pass a hurricane sandy relief bill this evening. $17 billion would go for immediate recovery in the affected northeastern states. another $33 billion is for long- term spending. some republicans argued that much of the money isn't for emergency relief at all. california's tom mcclintock called for stripping that funding out. >> according to the congressiona
others will have further north. one of the last lines of defense against the rebels and the north. >> we have a equipment's on the ground with artillery equipment and the means to fight in three dimensions. we are heavily equipped on territory. >> it is not clear what the endgame for france is. if it wants to protect citizens or if it has bigger ambitions. the government will certainly want the french to stay until they can recapture the north of the country. dodge the united nations is meeting to discuss sending a west african intervention force , approving a force to help defeat rebels in december. the nigeria and others have pledged troops but they can't get their home until september due to logistical problems. >> at the end of the day, the real solution will be a political solution. we want to support the political process and reconciliation in the north and the south. negotiation with the armed groups which will save them from terrorism. >> we have more from the united nations headquarters in new york. >> france has been urging west african states to send peacekeepers as soon as po
will have to go through the defense ministers, who will meet this week in the capital of five proposed, and finally the head of state will meet on saturday before they get it to the international community for the support they need. >> sounds like a very long process. as the fighting goes on, how bad is the humanitarian situation there? >> well, it's getting worse. we know that the humanitarian saw tion humanitarian 250,000 people had been displaced and crossed the borders into neighboring countries. thousands of people have been displaced. that is since the french offensive began. most of them are heading to the capital or have arrived already in the last government-held down towards the north. aid workers have described most of those people fleeing now as people who are panicked and exhausted. yesterday evening i spoke to a man who fled with his family of six from timbuktu. luckily for him he was able to get a boat on the river niger. he said most people want to leave, but they cannot afford the hefty fare is that the boat's owners are charging. most roads thremain closed. he spoke o
, but thinking violence can only be used in real self defense. libertarians -- back in the 2000's, people were talking about there being a liberal libertarian allies because of the anti-war attitude. it turned out liberals were not anti-war, they were just anti george bush. >> what about owning a semiautomatic rifle? >> most libertarians think you can own guns. >> why? >> some will say, you have the right to self-defense. they think guns are a way to protect yourself. it takes a lot to overcome the presumption. others will say things like, you cannot own an atomic weapon. it will always kill innocent people. there is a question of how much risk you are imposing on other people. the more congested the area you live in, the last rounds you have for owning a weapon. there are libertarians who are in favor of gun control. you can maybe owned a gun but only if you demonstrate competence and are not a criminal. it would be better if people did not own guns. would be better if we did not have the kind of gun culture we have in the united states. they are not in favor of gun control now because they t
national army. we have launched defenses without assistance and are happy to have the french by our side, planning a major role in air support and operations. >> support for the operation is the highest tier -- one of the main streets, french and malian flags side-by-side. the french have been bringing in troops to mali. 100 soldiers arrived here on sunday. they say their forces will stop the rebel advance and pave the way for other soldiers from the west african boc air force. >> -- bloc air force. >> a egyptian the appeals court has overturned the life sentence of former egyptian president hosni mali and his aide -- they are accused of stoppi been failo stop security forces from killing 900 demonstrators. the court threw out non guilty verdicts on separate corruption charges against mali, his sons, and a business -- mubarak, his sons, and a business partner. they will be tried for ordering peaceful protesters killed. >> these are his supporters in the court room, celebrating what they describe as long awaited justice. >> the verdict -- verdict is fair, and by god's will all of his assi
confess, but say she killed in self-defense. her attorneys will argue to this jury that alexander abused and controlled arias. and she killed him to save her own life that day. >> the defense is going to be someone to come in and clean up the mess of her multiple stories and explain that in some kind of a narrative. >> reporter: many court observers believe jodi arias will take the stand. she almost has to to make that self-defense claim stick. by then, the prosecutor is hoping the jury will have heard so many lies, they won't believe a word out of her mouth. george? >> hard to see what kind of story she could tell. >>> now, we're going to turn to the mystery of what happened to millions of dollars earned by patricia cornwell. it's part of a huge lawsuit with her former money managers. she says they have been ripping her off. but they claim that, quote, cornwell was living large. and john schriffen is here with all of it. >> reporter: this is a lot of money. according to the lawsuit, patricia cornwell says she discovered something was wrong in 2009, when he net worth was around $13 milli
the previous year. it's also more than the 295 u.s. combat deaths in afghanistan in 2012. defense secretary leon panetta has called the problem of military suicide an epidemic. afghan president hamid karzai called today for a loya jirga-- or grand assembly-- to decide whether u.s. troops should be immune from afghan laws. the u.s. has said it needs sole legal jurisdiction over any troops who stay, after combat forces leave at the end of 2014. in a kabul speech, karzai said it would take about eight or nine months to come to a decision. it is a decision of the people of afghanistan. the national assembly of elders of the people of afghanistan should decide whether to give the i am unity or not. if they give it, under which conditions they should do so. but the americans told us that if you do not give us the i am unity, we have to leave afghanistan for good. and won't have any relationship with you. >> sreenivasan: karzai said the u.s. has agreed to his demands to respect afghan sovereignty. he discussed the issues with president obama in washington on friday. mass protests were held in isla
this and will spend a lot of money. and wheyou look at these issues of nominee for secretary of defense, nominee for secretary of the treasury, and these criticisms on diversity, what did he say about that, major? >> well, the president said just hold on a minute. wait until i have made my appointments but for at point. s made so far on the national security side, all white males, treasury secretary, jack lew, an insider, chief of staff now moving over there, there are those who look at this administration and say not only is he not diverse as diverse tas was the% term, but it doesn't have any sort of that low level rivalry contingent that the first term cabinet did. all these people are died in the wool obama loyalists om the tightest elemental elements of the innercircle for president obama. and that is not a diversity criticism t might be a sort of well wa, kind of outside opinions and perspectives are you getting at all, diverse or otherwise, and there are those who are criticizing the president's current approach to his cabinet on those basis as well as diverse knit a more traditional sense
maybe within state, within the white house, within the defense department about american options? >> well, american options are limited by american law right now. becae u. law o ibt ds assisting a government or a military that came to power through a coup. and right now the malian government that we are trying to support in their efforts to control the rebels and to control the al qaeda and islamic militants in mali came to power through coup. so we can't provide them direct assistance. so u.s. law prohibits that. we're finding work arounds what that mean as secretary clinton laid out today is that by this weekend there will be military trainers in the area to train african militaries to go into mali, we'll be paying for that. we will be helping to fund the airlift to bring in a french battalion. there will be about 600 troops coming in with tanks to mali. so there are work arounds but there are restrictions that prevent the u.s. military from getting directly involved in mali. >> what can we do to support the french? >> the french have asked the united states for a number of thi
, jake johnson at the department of defense had addressed the legal basis for our military efforts against al qaeda. the general counsel for the cia has discussed how the agency operates under the u.s. law. there was a lecture given two years ago. they noted that u.s. practices, including legal -- comply with all law, including the laws of war. given these efforts, adventure to say that the u.s. government has never been so open regarding its counterterrorism. there seems to be public and legal debate surrounding these technologies and how they are sometimes used in the fight against al qaeda. i want to be clear. in the course of the war in afghanistan and the fight against al qaeda, i think the american people expect us to use advanced technologies. for example, prevent attacks on u.s. forces and remove terrorists from the battlefield. that is what we do. it has saved the lives of men and women in uniform. what has captured the attention of many is a different practice. it identifies specific members of al qaeda and targeting them with legal force, often using aircraft operated by
. a research fellow at the national defense university. the comments i about to make regarding chapter 14 never represent the thoughts of my institution, a miami lawyer, department of defense command present my own research and conclusions and i think the for the opportunity for that academic freedom and freedom to publish in the book. in the text with the 80% solution the death of the been long been teetwo and for security i worked hard to justify several points calling t to as constructed from osama bin london and with the american policies subsequent to the death. my general thrust is the following three areas. . . into something galvanized and formidable and therefore a menacing threat to the west and outer regional areas. the unique and acute problem posed by bin laden's al qaeda was its credible effort to grasp itself on top of the wider movement and its one substantial progress ann option was brought together largely and in most significant ways in the region we are talking about here, talibanistan. so i think that's important and a marker as to why this is so important. in the chapter i
and secretary of defense. it's a different u.s. response. much more limited, more strategic, more dependent on drones. >> frankly, superior approach because what happened to the bush administration is he decided to invade iraq, a country that wasn't even on the list of al qaeda, completely distracted us from this growth that the speaker talked about. this has been going on all over the world but we focus on a country-by-country basis. president obama gets it on this and he is appointing people who understand the delicate nature of trying to look at the inner connections and i'm very pleased about that. >> i agree with susan about what the u.s. and u.s. would not do in mali andalgeria and all of that. could it be distracting to an agenda if things start to blow up overseas? >> the longer you hang around 1600 pennsylvania avenue, the odds start rising against you and bad things happen in the world that you're going to have to deal with. the issue in africa is more acute going forward because africa kind of looms as part of this changing energy equation. much more energy opportunity and more w
